What was Nikita Khrushchev's favorite food?

My grandfather in law was a translator in the Kremlin from 1949 until 1972. He told me that Krushchev loved very simple food; black bread and salt, borsch without dairy products and pilmini. But he loved chocolate, especially from western Europe and kept a huge supply of it in his desk.

Cuban Missile Crisis
Nikita Khrushchev

Who were the leaders during the cuban missile crisis?

Countries involved in the Cuban missile crisis were Cuba, USA and USSR.

Their leaders were Fidel Castro of the Cuban Communist government, President John F. Kennedy of the USA, and Nikita Khrushchev of the USSR.

It's important to know which leaders were involved, however, Fidel Castro views were not important. He was a minor player. Whatever Kennedy and Khrushchev decided he had to support. If not he would have lost the USSR as a "friend". And at that time, his only friend was the Soviet Union. China was not a factor.

Who succeeded Joseph Stalin as the leader of the Soviet Union?

There was a power struggle among the Soviet Communist Party elite to succeed Stalin after his death in 1953. Georgy Malenkov was nominally the next leader after Stalin, but only remained in sole power for about a week. The Troika (triumvirate) of Malenkov, Beria and Molotov ruled for the next six months.

Khrushchev plotted with other high ranking Party leaders to have Beria executed.

The leader who eventually emerged and held power for the next eleven years was Nikita Khrushchev.

Khrushchev cleverly out maneuvered other top Party officials, and built his own power base. He was successful and rooted out "hardliners" when he revealed Stalin's crimes against other communists and the Russian people in general. In this manner "Stalinist" style rivals for power were ousted from any positions that would hamper Khrushchev's leadership role that he created for himself.

Who was the first secretary of the communist party after Joseph Stalin died?

Based on the words of Nikita Khrushchev, there was confusion among the top Soviet leaders when Stalin died. Malenkov emerged as Prime Minister and First Secretary of the Communist Party with Beria second in the hierarchy. These two men were temporary political allies. On the other hand, Khrushchev, for a brief time went along with this situation. In less then a month, Malenkov was pressed into giving up his position as Secretary to Khrushchev, while maintaining his position of Prime Minister. Khrushchev officially became the Secretary within six months.

What bad things did nikita Khrushchev do?

More than likely, the crushing of the Hungarian people in 1956 with infantry and tanks was a brutal thing. Hungary was "taken over" as was most of Eastern Europe and forced into a communist state where escape was almost impossible.By his own admission in his memoirs he signed the death warrants for almost 40,000 disloyal Soviet citizens under Stalin, and was somehow unaware that when the USSR occupied one half of Poland under the Nazi-Soviet Non-Aggression Pact of 1939, that 15,000 Polish army officers and solduers were summarily executed in the eastern forests of Poland.

Why did Robert Kennedy respond to Khrushchev's first letter but ignore the second letter?

Simply put, the first letter from Khrushchev was more conciliatory, giving JFK a glimmer of hope that the missiles would be removed from Cuba without escalation. The second letter that came was more aggressive in nature, stating the Soviet Union would retaliate if provoked. Also, the first was a private letter believed to be from a stressed Khrushchev personally, whereas the second was a public statement believed to be dictated by the hardliners in the Soviet government.
By answering the first and ignoring the second, JFK was able to set the parameters of the ongoing debate over the Soviet missiles in Cuba, ultimately leading to the removal of the missiles without further incident.
